Admonition for social welfare through the examples of prior nations
1 By the Break of Day 6108
2 By the Nights twice five; 6109
3 By the Even and Odd (contrasted); 6110
4 And by the Night when it passeth away 6111
5 Is there (not) in these and adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand? 6112
6 Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the `Ad (people) 6113
7 Of the (city of) Iram with lofty pillars 6114
8 The like of which were not produced in (all) the land? 6115
9 And with the Thamud (people) who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?-- 6116
10 And with Pharaoh Lord of Stakes? 6117
11 (All) these transgressed Beyond bounds in the lands.
12 And heaped therein Mischief (on mischief).
13 Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisement:
14 For thy Lord is (As a Guardian) on a watch-tower. 6118
What should be avoided to do real social welfare
15 Now as for man when his Lord trieth him giving him honor and gifts then saith he (puffed up) "My Lord hath honored me." 6119
16 But when He trieth him restricting his subsistence for him then saith he (in despair) "My Lord hath humiliated me!" 6120
17 Nay nay! but ye honor not the orphans! 6121
18 Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor! 6122
19 And ye devour inheritance all with greed. 6123
20 And ye love wealth with inordinate love!
Day of judgement will be too late to heed the admonition and Allah's address to the believers
21 Nay! when the earth is pounded to powder 6124
22 And thy Lord cometh and His angels rank upon rank
23 And Hell that Day is brought (face to face) on that Day will man remember but how will that remembrance profit him? 6125
24 He will say: "Ah! would that I had sent forth (Good Deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life."
25 For that Day His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict 6126
26 And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.
27 (To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul in (complete) rest and satisfaction! 6127
28 "Come back thou to thy Lord well pleased (thyself) and well-pleasing unto Him! 6128
29 "Enter thou then among my Devotees!
30 "Yea enter thou my Heaven"! 6129
